Ronnie Fieg’s rendition of the Nike LeBron 15 came just in the waning days of 2017; specifically December 30th. LeBron’s birthday. Dropping two iterations of the signature, the Performance and Lifestyle, it was the latter that gained perhaps the most attention as Bron teased the then-upcoming release with his walk into the arena on a couple of occasions.
For All-Star Weekend round two appears to be kicking off thanks to a cryptic note from Ronnie Fieg himself. And what better launching pad is there than Los Angeles; the City of Angels. Dipped with a heavenly white and articulated with embroidered regal patterned Battleknit. As far launch details go; stay with Sole-U for info and updates.
Over a year ago we began working closely with the Nike Basketball team and LeBron to reimagine the XV through our lens. The Battleknit upper was something I was excited to experiment with. My first instinct was to see how it would take premium applications like embroidery. We developed a regal pattern that drew inspiration from royal cloaks. What followed was an incredibly intricate process that stunned all of us when it was complete. The devil is in the details. And the result is fit for a king. Chapter 2 soon come.
